How's THAT for cute?
Well, not entirely wrong, but still getting waaaaaay stressed out. This is a lot of work. I don't think I've ever studied as much as I'm planning on studying these next few weeks. Posting has been sparse lately, as I've kicked it into high gear this semester in an effort to perform to my absolute fullest. It is showing in my grades so far, which I honestly never thought could be this high. I still have this nervous feeling that it has all been a fluke so far, and the next exam is going to kill me, but so far my study strategy (which essentially equals reading the coursepacks until my eyes bleed while making table after table after table and washing it all down with 8,293,812 practice questions) has been working well for me. That, and the awesome time I've spent with Wife lately. She came back to school with me this past weekend, and I made the 1hour+ round trip to bring her back this afternoon. No good, that.
The unexpected answer to getting stressed out?
The Best Big Sib Ever.
MSU CHM has a "Big Sibling" program, which I signed up for at the beginning of the year. Basically, they match you up with an M2 (second year student) to show you the ropes. I requested to have my cousin's wife Bekah as my big sib, and has she ever come through for me! I got a message on Facebook to check my mailbox, and what did I find? This awesome, cheerful yellow envelope filling up some of the empty space that plagues my box! Here's what was inside:
Tonight just got better...
